Former President Jimmy Carter of USA on March 21, 2019 took the title of oldest living president in the US history. At the age 94 years and 172 days, Jimmy Carter dethroned late former President George H. W. Bush who died at the age of 94 years and 171 days. In the world's list of oldest living heads of state, however, Jimmy Carter only managed to climb from 21st place to the 20th place on the list, with Asians and Africans as his main rivals!

His humanitarian efforts through his charitable organization The Carter Center among others, focus on the world's poorest.
